What are the CrossFit Games?

“In implementation, this looks like sport. This is revolutionary. It's as distinctive of the program as are the movements and the charter of functionality and variance. Our workouts are competitive events.

The strength and value of CrossFit lies entirely within our dominance of other athletes. This is a truth divined through competition, not debate.”

Greg Glassman, CrossFit Co-Founder & CEO
3, 2, 1 — GO!

The Games are over and the results are in!

The Top Female CrossFitter for 2008 is Caity Matter of Gahanna, OH, where she trains with Rogue Fitness. Tanya Wagner took second place and Gillian Mounsey took third.

The Top Male CrossFitter for 2008 is Jason Khalipa of CrossFit Unlimited in Milpitas, CA. Josh Everett came in second, with Jeremy Thiel in third.

The Affiliate Cup was won by the team from CrossFit Oakland.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all the volunteers, spectators, and competitors for a great weekend!

Cool picture, looks like fun! They definitely earned the rest.

Anybody know if Crossfit Games shirts are available to order online? I was at the event, but they weren't selling them.

The fittest ride on earth?

A couple of questions:

So was that ride AMRAP or RFT?

How much cotton candy is in a carb block?

Manimal looks like the cro-mag display at the natural history museum...as if he's performing a fire-dance or something!!

That was fun.

That looks like great day, and from all I saw this past weekend, very well deserved. You guys are great and I miss you silly SOBs already.

Yes this was a most hilarious night! The guys got to experience Chris on a roller coaster, and this thing that shot you in the air within seconds. (He has a hard time breathing properly on those rides.) So much fun!
